The Hipstones are soul with a capital S. Soul that soothes. Soul that grooves. And Soul that moves. From the streets of Tokyo to the stage of the Sydney Opera house; from Australia to the musical depths of the New York City, The Hipstones have established themselves as one of the premier soul bands on the scene today.
With their powerhouse ensemble tearing up New York’s funkiest clubs, Mark and Anthea have built a sound that’s just a little bit Marvin Gaye, and a whole lot modern day. Their last album, Dreamers (2010), is a testament to their unique vision and mastery of all things jazz, soul, funk and groove.
With their impressive wealth of musical influences, The Hipstones manage to not only pay homage to the past, but to also define a kind of future. A future built on world-class music and an undeniable band. A future born from their storied international lineage. A future with a capital F.
